Due to our ever increasing technology, smaller groups of people can create massive harm to us all. We need to urgently unite around a basic principle that allows every competent adult to define and pursue their happiness in any way they peacefully choose. The cost of achieving freedom and peace is that we must agree not to forcefully impose our personal moral views on others. We call for the world’s reasonable people to unite and organize the laws of the world around a principle we call the, “Live and Let Live Principle.”
If you are frustrated and tired of the status quo, politics, and all the chaos we see daily in the media, The Live and Let Live Global Peace Movement is for you.
Our one Principle contains two sub-parts or sub-principles. The end goal? To separate our own personal morality from the law for the purpose of achieving global peace.
This means you are in charge of your life. You get to define and pursue your own happiness; you get to decide how to live your life on your own terms. You should be solely in charge of your body, all your peacefully acquired property and money, and all your time. Stated simply, you are in charge of you. You own your life!
That said, the Live and Let Live Movement intentionally seeks to inspire you to be the best version of yourself you can be. We urge you to stop for a moment and reflect on the good and the not so good about your existence on this planet. We challenge you to bring a new and best possible version of yourself to the planet.
Bring that best version, not for us, not for the rest, but for you! You are in charge of your happiness. Own it! You are in charge of your own mind, body, property, and time. Own yourself and everything that implies.
The Live and Let Live Movement seeks to inspire all people to simply be good humans. While we may disagree about some aspects of being a good human, most people have a general idea of the concept. We embrace and promote the aspirational values that will take your life to the next level.
We refer to this effort to inspire others to voluntarily be good humans as, “The Live and Let Live Moral Principle.” To “be a good human” means to accept and promote certain aspirational values.
We promote these aspirational values because we seek to optimize human happiness and wellbeing while also reducing all suffering. Indeed, this is the overall goal of the moral principle.
If more people voluntarily adopt these aspirational values, we will improve our chances of achieving global peace.
Let’s challenge ourselves to be happier, healthier, and more ethical people. Let’s also seek to make the lives of those around us less complicated and more fulfilling.
We seek to empower YOU to be in charge of your decisions, actions, and outcomes.
To properly observe the Live and Let Live Principle, and to promote freedom and peace, we must allow others the exact same right to also peacefully live their lives on their own terms. We must let others live even if we disagree with the peaceful choices they make. The cost of achieving peace is letting others do what you also have the right to do; to own and control their own lives. This is especially important when we find their choices to be immoral, unhealthy, unwise, or against their self-interest. We must legally respect the rights of others to peacefully do things we disagree with.
To aggress against another person’s body, property, money, or time is to violate the other person’s right to live their lives. Each competent adult owns their own life and the property they peacefully accumulate.
Therefore, The Live and Let Live Legal Principle prohibits all aggression and can be described with the simple phrase, “Don’t be an aggressor!” As a legal principle, this phrase is not a suggestion. All laws ought to be in harmony with the Live and Let Live Legal Principle such that aggression, whether engaged in by any person, group, organization, corporation, or government, ought to be absolutely outlawed.
To outlaw aggression means to outlaw all initiations of force, all fraud, all coercion, and anything that creates a substantial risk or threat of harm to another person or their property. The Live and Let Live Legal Principle applies to all people equally, even if they form groups, organizations, corporations, or governments. We should never legally tolerate aggression regardless of the source.
In summary, we believe in the phrase, “live and let live” as a way for us to live together peacefully. That phrase, and several others such as, “live the golden rule” describes an underlying principle we refer to as, “The Live and Let Live Principle.” The Live and Let Live Principle can be divided into a “moral” principle and a “legal” principle.
The Live and Let Live Moral Principle seeks to inspire people to be good humans. The people in the Live and Let Live Global Peace Movement agree on and promote the aspirational values described by this moral principle. However, we also recognize, and would defend, the legal rights of people to entirely reject the moral principle so long as they are peaceful.
The Live a Let Live Legal Principle seeks to outlaw all acts of aggression whether engaged in by any person, group, organization, corporation, or government. As such, The Live and Let Live Global Peace Movement supports all laws that outlaw aggression, and opposes all laws that are calculated to achieve other goals. While we energetically advocate for other goals, we must achieve them peacefully and voluntarily rather than imposing our personal morality on others through the law.
In short, to live and let live requires that we each resolve to advocate for our own personal moral goals from outside the law while calibrating the law only to outlaw all acts of aggression from whatever source. There is no other way to achieve either freedom or peace.
The Live and Let Live Principle applies to all people equally regardless of race, nationality, ethnicity, religiosity or lack thereof, sexual orientation, economic status or any other immutable characteristic. We are all brothers and sisters. We should celebrate our diversity as we celebrate our lives. The path to global peace is clear, let’s simply live and let live!
I believe everyone can agree on the Live and Let Live Principle. I also believe people are powerful, especially when they collaborate with passion and purpose. We’ve created something more engaging and exciting than anything before in the history of world movements. At no other time in history have we been so concerned, connected and able to unite in this kind of activity. I invite you personally to learn more and be a part of the Live and Let Live Movement.

I have had good experience with the Live and Let Live Movement. I'm passionate about world peace and as a clinical psychologist find the Principle to be a solid foundation for building solid aspirational values.
This is THE MOST IMPORTANT WORK anyone can do while journeying through this earthly realm. Promote free and respectful interaction CONSISTENTLY. I intend to partner with this organization to generate synergy so the ideas will one day spread like flames in a dry field of tinder wood.
I was introduced to the Live and Let Live Movement and loved the Principle. It supports my mission and business intentions. I have spoken about my involvement and shared the website in my newsletter and in a webinar. I have daily discussions with my clients about the movement.
I am a philosopher, business man, creative writer and a passionate free market advocate. I joined 3LM in 2021 and grew very passionate about the 3LM founding principles. As a passionate Libertarian, I found 3LM as a platform to not only grow as a leader in the movement but also contribute in the success of the movement.
I am the founding president and CEO of Face of Liberty International, an organization saddled with expanding African continent growth by working with a network of independent partner organizations that promote free market, individual freedom and are devoted to pinpointing and expunging any blockage to human success. Since I got connected with the 3LM, I have made it a matter of passion to share the idea in my local territory. I have also taken the Principle being preached to Universities in Nigeria.
My 'why' in life, since a teenager, is to be the best human I can be and help facilitate harmony among people and planet. I found the Live and Let Live Principle to be a unifying force for everyone to engage the possibility. The Movement's capacity for inspired activity is already evident with chapters in place across the globe.
